The First King Park Farmers' Market -- photo by Dylan Tweney
My husband and kids had a great time at the Farmers Market on Saturday. Yes that’s my cute kid in the first photo — a little rain doesn’t stop him!
They said everyone was super friendly and they got lots of tasty samples.

They found some nice treats including
kohlrabi (?!) which turns out to very yummy sliced thin and tossed with a little lemon juice, olive oil and a shake or two of salt. But the hands down winner was the strawberries topped with a little of the Grant Gardens winter honey (which they say is maybe from eucalyptus pollen, but I detect a serious fennel flavor). Dylan bought a pound of honey and three baskets of strawberries and they are a fabulous treat! He reports that prices are pretty good too.
I’d like to give a special shout out to the Grant Gardens guys, Rich and Jim, who are not only the most local vendors at the Farmers market, from our very own Grant Street, but may be responsible for the fact that our fruit trees are producing more fruit in the last year or two, thanks to their local hives. I look forward to meeting them next week when I get to go to the market myself.
